Import Policy Templates

You can export policies from one tenant and import them to other tenants. As a result, it is easy to meet compliance or security needs without recreating policies. These imported policies can also be deleted if they are no longer needed or outdated.

IMPORTANT: Skyhigh CASB does not support importing or exporting policies or policy templates that include more than 50 rule groups or that exceed 64 KB in size, whichever limit is reached earlier.

Import Policy Templates

To import a template:

  1. Go to Policy > Policy Templates
  2. Select the Table View
  3. Click Actions > Import Template(s).

  4. Click Choose File and locate the .zip file containing the template or templates you would like to import. Click Import Template(s).

Known Issue: When importing a policy template from one tenant to another tenant, the Responses wizard displays an empty incident status and is unable to save the DLP Policy as it continuously loads. This is due to the Custom Incident Status selected in Tenant 1 not being available in Tenant 2, resulting in an empty incident status.

As a workaround, Unassigned is given as a new incident status on the Responses wizard which allows you to save your DLP policies without issue.

Policy Validation Improvements

While importing DLP Policies from one tenant to another, you may find validation errors. The validation error occurs because dictionaries are not synchronized from one tenant to another. If synchronization happens, you don’t see any validation errors.

To overcome these validation errors, the process has been improved for:

  • Collaboration Rule
  • Data Identifier Rule
  • Classifications
  • Bulk Activations with Invalid Classifications
  • Fingerprints

Collaboration Rule

  1. Go to Policy > DLP Policies > DLP Policies.clipboard_e98e402c6331d0e5443eced3c55b59633.png
  2. Select the Policy you have imported and listed as Inactive, to check the Validation errors.clipboard_eea1b9303b2ea7e274470270816f00cab.png
  3. On IF that the Collaboration Rule is using the Dictionary "keycron5" (custom dictionary) and isn't present in this particular tenant. To check if the dictionary is present in the tenant, go to Policy > DLP Policies > Dictionaries.
  4. To validate, go to Rules > Edit and provide a proper custom dictionary.clipboard_e07c05b5f9d1839590415e38f393e2252.png
  5. For example, Select Anyone.
  6. Select Done.
  7. Do the same for AND, for Sharing To as the example below.clipboard_e48b7016c1b0845b58e11a0a4356f78d3.png
  8. Select Done.
  9. The Result is displayed.

  12. Select Save.
